Bob McFarland, R-Arlington, said the measure was • passed during the regular session but vetoed by Gov Bill Clements because of a Senate amendment that would prevent the city of Houston from housing prisoners overnight. McFarland said Clements approved the original bill but said the Senate amendment would result in “massive dislocation” of the law enforcement system. McFarland said he would offer ar. amendment to call for submission of competitive proposals instead of competitive bidding in Herald Zeituny graphic the contracts He said cities need bids on proposals that cover both construction and operation of the facilities, not just construction The committee discussed but left pending a bill by Sen Hugh Parmer of Fort Worth, to allow city police departments to seize and sell property or personal belongings of those involved in a felony, Fort Worth Police Chief Tom Wuidham said the measure, patterned after a Florida law, would net only help prevent crime but would help police departments with budget problems He said the Texas Police Association supported the measure, Sen Bob Glasgow, D-Stephenville, said the bill needed to be rewritten to be sure constitutional rights involving homesteads and joint property rights are protected “I think police should be more concerned in arresting people for crimes instead of getting more money for their department,” See TDC Peg# 2 ;
